Quote of the day: Caroline Baker



Caroline Baker stylist

“The early 1980s was a lovely time. Punk had shaken everyone up, the Japanese taking over Paris was dynamic in terms of new looks and working with [Katharine] Hamnett was thrilling for me as she always pushed me to do more and more! I have always loved adding strings, ribbons, belts, torn strips of fabric, net and lace to my styling looks so I was in my element.”
Caroline Baker, Hope And Glitter

This quote is taken from a rather lovely interview with legendary stylist Caroline Baker on Iain R Webb’s blog, Hope & Glitter. I assisted Caroline years ago, and if I forgot to pack her bag of ribbons on a shoot there would be hell to pay!



Quote of the day



“I started putting girls in men’s clothes. Yves Saint Laurent had just produced the tuxedo, but who could afford Yves Saint Laurent? So I went to Moss Brothers, where they had a great second-hand department. It didn’t have to fit, just put a gold belt around it and then wear high heels.”
